I think the next closest thing would be 8/14/71, during the post drums TOO Jam. There is definately a moment there that is very reminiscent, in no small part due to the bright and shiny tone of that SG..

His tone. Yeah you nailed it. Love the tone he has in 71 than any other year. Sounds like he's on top of a mountain, playing to the gods. Hey sko!

Hey Sko,

I'm not sure he was playing the SG in August. He played several different guitars that year, starting with the SG. But by March/April he was using that custom Alembic, and in the summer switched to a Les Paul TV (a guitar that was literally designed to look better on TV). He was also using a sunburst Les Paul at some point. By the end of the year he was already using the Graham Nash Strat, but I'm guessing that didn't come out until the first tour with Keith in Fall/Winter 71.

1971- Sunburst Les Paul

March and April Jer switches to a custom built guitar. Said to be a Alembic project


May Jer breaks out the Natural 57 Fender Strat that Graham Nash gave him

Summer switches to a Gibson Les Paul TV http://www.dozin.com/jers/guitar/history.htm

My guess would be yes. I can't seem to find any photos from those shows though. Seems clear that by April he was playing the custom guitar with the small body.

And by the time of the Fillmore West closing show (July 2), he was playing the TV for sure.
